Dhani Harrison, whose first solo album IN///PARALLEL will be released on 6th October through BMG Records, released a new song today. ‘Admiral of Upside Down’ is the second single and last track from his forthcoming album. Echoing influences from his time as a composer over the past few years, the music of IN///PARALLEL paints a cinematic soundscape.
In ‘Admiral of Upside Down’, the flourishing orchestral song has the motion of a never-ending cycle, emblematic of personal growth and evolution, which offers listeners a perspective into Harrison’s own developments and introspective thoughts that he’s explored while creating the album. In crafting this solo project, he’s taken a deep dive into his own identity, and from that has emerged an audio experience of self-awareness.
LISTEN TO ‘ADMIRAL OF UPSIDE DOWN’ BELOW:
“The record is about self-discovery, self-love, self-healing,” Harrison explains. “You can’t be loved until you learn to love yourself. You can’t help others until you learn to help yourself.”
In this new stage of his musical transformation, Harrison steps it up with a grand-scale vision that begs for a spectacular live presentation. The sound stems inspiration from visionary icons like David Bowie, Radiohead and Massive Attack to fellow film composer Hans Zimmer.
“It’s an introspective trip from where I was to where I am now,” he says about the album. “I had things happen during recording this that changed my perspective on everything.”
In addition to sharing the new song, Harrison has announced six more tour dates in the Autumn, which include performances in Philadelphia, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Santa Ana, and Los Angeles. He recently played the Panorama Festival in New York City and a sold out show at The Echo in Los Angeles. Summer Moon featuring Nikolai Fraiture (The Strokes), Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction), Camila Grey (Uh Huh Her) and Noah Harmon (The Airborne Toxic Event) will be supporting this run with Mereki on select dates as well.
